The funding is part of the ETF's maths and English Pipeline V programme, and we are now inviting organisations to get in touch if they would like to host a course - for as little as FIVE of your own staff. There is more information about our one-day maths, one-day English and coaching courses on these flyers.

These are the courses you could host (or attend at another venue which is hosting one):

  • One-day introduction to mathematical resilience
  • One-day introduction to English resilience
  • Three-day coaching skills for mathematical resilience
  • Three-day coaching skills for English resilience
  • Three-day coaching skills for mathematical and English resilience

The three-day courses can only be taken by those who have already done the one-day course - and the whole four-days can be booked as a package. The Coaching Skills for Mathematical and English resilience course is designed for people who have to teach both maths and English, often in a work-based training setting, though is available to all.

If you would like to host one of these courses, either for just your own staff, or for your own and some externals, please contact WMCETT Project Manager Julie Chamberlain on J.chamberlain@warwick.ac.uk .
